Author Spotlight - Excerpt from "The Faberge Secret"
Elise took another step and walked into someone hard and masculine.
She lost her balance, lunged out, and grabbed the man's coat. He caught her, but the momentum of her fall drove them both to the ground. He slammed into the cold pavement, taking the brunt of the fall.
"I'm so sorry..." Elise placed her hand on his rock-hard chest and lifted her head only to discover the most stunning pair of cerulean eyes she'd ever seen. Her heart stopped for just a brief second before accelerating to a wild tattoo. An immediate attraction rocked her.
"Elise!" Lucy knelt beside the couple.
"You'll forgive me, miss, but you seem to have me at a disadvantage." The man's voice was deep, yet resonant with the lilt of a foreign accent.
Elise bit her lower lip, pausing momentarily to drink in his handsome, angular features. His lips were firm and sensual, parting into a broad smile to reveal straight white teeth. He possessed thick, tawny-gold hair, and massive shoulders filled his coat. God, he felt wonderful. She gave in to the moment, savoring the contact with him.
"I'm sorry," she said again, softly.
"Are you hurt?" Lucy grabbed Elise's arm and pried her off the handsome stranger. Her body ached from the sudden departure of his masculine heat and spicy cologne.
Amusement flickered in his eyes as he got to his feet. "I'm fine. Thank you for asking."
Lucy glared at Elise. "Check your pockets."
